After a long hiatus (one I'm sure EVERYONE noticed), the most inconsistent "art" blog on Comic Vine returns with something a little different. Here, in the spirit of the DC Comics reboot, I decide to take a crack at re-designing the costume of one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. Here's The Flash.
Although this is technically Barry Allen, I obviously took inspiration from other Flashes (primarily Jay Garrick). I also threw a bunch of white into the typical Flash "speed-suit", and gave Barry some proper footwear. I always felt like it was weird that the Flash whose power revolves around RUNNING was always running in boots. Just seemed weird to me.

Anyway, for those interested, I sketched this deal out in pencil, followed by pen, then colored it with colored pencils and crayon. Yes. Crayon.
Enjoy, Comic Viners, and feel free to comment and critique!
